Gown Styles - Lace Gowns

Gown Styles...
Lace gowns

Whether you are a traditional or modern bride lace can work for you on your big day!  Lace can evoke a feminine and delicate look – softening a silhouette and adding texture.  At Karen Willis Holmes we use a number of French Chantilly and Corded laces on our gowns and want to share with you.

The ‘Estelle’ gown is a great mix of modern design and delicate lace – a bustier style gown with lace and ribbon top stitch work on the bodice and a half circle skirt made from layers of tulle, flowing into a train.

The ‘Dakota’ gown one of our most popular designs – highlighted by a flattering v-neckline and all over corded lace that features a scalloped hem and train, this gown is a perfect balance of a youthful and demure look. The gown is accented with georgette ruffle sleeves and a georgette waist tie. The Dakota gown looks elegant with a full length single tier veil or simply add a brooch and the look is complete.

While the Royal Wedding has been and gone we have noticed that brides are taking note of Kate’s royal look and turning to lace!  Why not try the Emily lace blouse over an A-line gown or tulle skirt for a traditionally look.

If you are after a lace gown experiment with different silhouettes and looks that feature this gorgeous feature – it may be a an accent like a lace cap sleeve or an all over lace gown may be the main focus of your look but remember keep the accessories to a minimum. An ivory ribbon look great with lace gowns when it is tied at the waist for a subtle definition.  A gorgeous pair of drop earrings and bracelet is all you will need.

Lace is a delicate and unique feature that can add detail to your wedding gown and will create a timeless and elegant look.
